TSC Volunteer Appreciation BBQ at Glynnwood

patioTSC is partnering with Glynnwood to offer a FREE BBQ for Volunteers actively involved with the Club between Sept 2019 and March 2020.  Volunteer status will be confirmed when you reserve.

Date:  Wednesday August 18th, 2021  (Rain date Thursday August 19th)

Location:  Revera – Glynnwood 7700 Bayview Ave. on the outdoor patio beside the pond on north side of building.  Entrance via outdoor walkway (NOT through the building).

Times to choose from (limited spots at each seating)*:




On the Menu:  BBQ’d jumbo hot dogs, cold pop/ bottled water and ice cream

Parking:  While there are several parking lots available at Glynnwood, spots will be limited.  We highly encourage carpooling, or if possible, park at the Thornhill Community Centre and walk over.

*Please Note:  In keeping with safe social distancing and with limited seating space, the event has been divided into 3 seating times.  To avoid congestion between seatings, please arrive at the patio area at your reserved time (not early!) so the group before you has time to depart.  If your Volunteer friends are unable to reserve your same seating time, you are welcome to meet them before or after and enjoy the rest of the grounds.  There is a large covered Gazebo with seating near the main entrance and benches throughout the property where you can sit and chat.

To reserve your spot, please email Cindy at cpetrowtsc@gmail.com with your full name and preferred time.  Volunteers who do not use the internet will be contacted by phone.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Message from the City of Markham Regarding Reopening

We have just received the following message from the City of Markham regarding reopening:

“On July 16, the Province entered Step Three of its Roadmap to Reopen. The Government of Ontario’s decision to move to Step Three of the reopening plan is based on the continual improvement to public health and health care indicators, provincewide vaccination rates and consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health.

Currently, the City of Markham has reopened select outdoor amenities and recreational facilities, including Morgan Park Outdoor Pool and Rouge River Outdoor Pool. The Markham Pan Am Centre Pool is scheduled to open on July 21. In addition, the City of Markham continues to offer a variety of outdoor, in-person and virtual programs to help keep you active and engaged – safely.

At this time, City-owned community centres (including TSC), our indoor tennis facility, indoor soccer domes, indoor arenas, indoor pools, fitness centres, the Markham Museum, the Flato Markham Theatre and the Varley Art Gallery remain closed.  Once the City finalizes its reopening plan for the Fall, details will be shared publicly.

For the latest information about the City’s COVID-19 affected City services and what’s open and closed, please visit markham.ca/covid19 or contact the Customer Contact Centre at 905-477-5530 or customerservice@markham.ca.
